I think all the 'racism' talk probably got it deleted.
The match deserves its own thread at least though - Well done Venus, great fight.

OP's deeply confused. Probably has yet to realise they deleted the thread.


Anyway, best match of RG so far

and where they produce desolation, they call it peace

Way to just get it done today Vee! Now let's pick it up on the return game. Vee missed too many returns (including flying 4 straight over the baseline in the 2rd set) for no particular reason. Luckily she served well enough.

Congrats Venus, however, it is sad that a good player like Safarova is now gone from the tournment because of the unbalanced draw... but that is how things go(next up another battle lol)

Critical moments, upped her game, either would have deserved to win but in the end, Venus had more. A great final two sets, once Lucie had settled into it. The final set was very, very good. Williamses loving their battles right now And loving the Williamses battles right now!

YOU HAVEN'T HEARD THE LAST FROM ME!
Because I'm still talking! That's right!

Wasteful, pointless randomness for your amusement.

Best match since the US Open final. So elated that Venus managed to fight this one out.

Good match by both, Venus in the end had too much firepower for Lucie. Onward and upward!

Re: Venus Defeated Safarova 6-7(5) 6-2 7-5

I didn't get to see the first set. Wondered if it was Safarova haing one of her 'out of her mind' sets, or Venus playing bad. After the second set, I thought that the fist had just been The Juicy Miss Lucie having a good day. But the third set impressed me. From both players. Venus clearly isn't moving all that well on this surface. But she competed. (no real surprise) And Safarova has some seriously atomic stuff in that backhand. She cracked a bit under the pressure of the moment. But Venus is a notoriously difficult player to put away.

I don't see Venus winning this event, but the semis are concievable. Not likely, but ...
